My FMIL is making our cake. She has her own cake bakery and makes gorgeous, delicious cakes so I'm really lucky!! But since she's my FMIL and she's such an important part of the wedding, I really haven't given much thought at all to the cake plans. She knows the wedding date, so she won't book anything for that same weekend, but my question is when should I start sitting down with her to do the normal planning involved for cakes? I'm worried she won't say anything to me for fear that I'll be stressed or something, so I'll just keep on forgetting that although I don't have to pay for this detail, it isn't going to plan itself. My wedding is next April, what's a good timeline for nailing down these plans? Also she lives out of town (4 hours from me and FI) so we definitely can't wait until the last minute to plan because I feel like I'm going to be super busy those last few weeks.
